1990 CRX Si hub cap paint

Postby StockY49 » Fri Oct 09, 2020 2:06 pm

My 1990 CRX Si had had 3 of its hubcaps repainted at some point by a previous owner, and the paint had faded so it didn't match the wheels very well any more. I did a search to see if anyone had had success matching the wheel paint with an off-the shelf product, but didn't find any good results. My search of local auto parts stores turned up Duplicolor BTY1617 Toyota Classic Silver Mica (1F7). I sprayed a couple coats of Duplicolor primer, the silver, then two coats of Duplicolor BCL0125 Clear Top Coat. I think the resulting finish is a pretty close match to the wheel color:

I hope this helps someone!

You're welcome! I was pretty happy with how close a match it seems to be. If I had it to do over, I might not have sprayed the clear coat. It may have imparted a slight yellowish cast.
